Exclamation lighted engine symbol and strange # in odometer

Hi all!
Long time lurker, first time poster. Hope someone can help me.
2000 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 6 cylinder 4.0 Liter.
Ok, so last night decided to take my jeep for a ride and a short time afte I started it, an engine symbol appeared in the dash display and the odometer immediately displayed what looked like "no bu 5". I have tried a forum search, and looked at the list of codes and didn't see anything that looked like this.
My jeep is not driven daily, it is usually driven a couple times a week.
Any idea what is going on?
Thanks

I test drove a jeep that did this and the gauges didn't register anything either. Owner said it was intermittent and he didn't know what it was either. I googled it using "wrangler no bus" and found quite a few hits but can't remember now what the issue was. I'm sure someone here will be able to give a more complete answer for you though.

It is likely from the connection to the gauge cluster, which can become loose or corroded. Taking the cluster out and cleaning up the connector usually fixes it.
